Feeling slightly better

Christopher got sick last week and a day or two later me and Em were feeling it too. Well, I was feeling it and I could tell Em was sick. Yesterday was the worst. She hasn't been sleeping so I havent been sleeping. And Monday night and Tuesday morning there was so much pressure and I was going nuts. Yesterday my mom came to help me. She watched Emery for a while so I could take a nap without worrying about her...she made me soup for lunch and she did the dishes =]

Anyways, last night it was hard to get her to sleep after 10 but when she eventually fell asleep she slept until 3. Then after eating she was up for about 1/2 hour, but then she slept until 8:30. And I feel much better. Although I kind of wish I could take a nighttime cold pill or some theraflu or something.

I feel so bad that her nose is so congested. But a question for other moms....when I have been using the aspirator, her mucus has been bloody. Is that normal? Or bad? Or okay?

Emery can roll over

Last Friday, umm..the 19th? Emery almost rolled over and it was out of the blue but awesome. Then on Wednesday this week the 14th, Christopher and I were having dinner at Erick and Amelia's and I said "Emery, now would be a great time to roll over." [or something along those lines...i dont remember exactly what i said]

And she did! So I put her back on her tummy and said [something like] " it again!" And she did! It was only twice but it was cool. Yesterday I went to my parents and she hasnt done it again since then, but atleast Christopher, Erick and Amelia can back me up!

My daughter is a genius..and she will be 3 months tomorrow. Eeek...isnt that amazing? Pretty soon she'll be getting married...

My sitter

Emery has learned to sit on her own. She sometimes lasts a while, but usually not. And i'm always there just in case. I realized she could one day while she was sitting on my lap. She does better when she's on my lap, I think because its not a flat surface.
She leans forward so much...but she'll learn. Sometimes she likes sitting on her own but usually she is only content for a few moments before she wants to be adjusted. I'm sure its not so comfy to sit on her own when your that far forward...
And she almost rolled over the other day. Friday I think it was. Totally out of the blue, but not quite yet...soon im sure.

My Big Girl

We moved Emery into her own room. The first night went relatively well for her, not so much for Christopher and I. It was weird...not having her in there with us. And we were scared..although we shouldn't be at our location. The second nigh (last night) didn't go quite as well. But Em hasnt been feeling well and she just had a rough night. I'm sure she still would have been difficult if she was in our room with us.

So today I went to visit Mamo (my mom) for some company and support during the day, and I got to take an hour and a half nap in my mom's waterbed while she watched Em. It was nice.

PS: Right now Christopher is holding Emery. She just fell asleep and sometimes she sleeps with her eyes slightly open. The funny thing is that even when she is sleeping, if you smile she will respond with a smile of her own. How cute is that? I love my booger....

I'm going nuts at home all the time. So if anyone wants to hangout or needs some company during the day, just give me a call.

15 pounder!

So I took Emery to the pediatrician yesterday but I don't really like her doctor anymore. I have a mother's intuition and I know that she is teething. But the doctor said no because shes so young and because "babies get their bottom teeth first." It was annoying because she wouldnt even feel so only glanced and said "Nope."

But she weighs 14 lbs. 14 oz. my big ol baby.

I tried to give her cereal last night. First of all, its so runny! Their was no consistency at all how it said to mix it. She wasn't loving it, but she was crying for a while after so I think she was in pain. I gave her maybe 4 spoonfuls and i'll keep on trying because I know shes ready to eat too.

Christopher stayed hime from work today because he has a dentist appointment at 2:00. It is so nice having him here to help me with her and to keep me company!

Poor Em

I think she's teething. I had already thought so and lately she's been real fussy. Worst at night...I was up almost every hour last night and she has been so upset! I was feeling her gums last night and I think she is getting her top teeth. We'll see. I called the doctor and I'm taking her in this morning in about an hour. I'll let you all know.

PS Here are some Christmas pictures of Em since i never posted any!
